    I am the soft one on things that don't matter eg sleeping in our bed but the tough one on the big stuff.


    Most of the time we are untied.

    Generally we're a united front.

    There are times though when you can tell who wears the pants in this family

    We both seem to have turns at being the tough guy in our house! Depends on our respective moods I think...

    Generally we're on the same page with most things but DH will occasionally tell DS for something small that wouldn't bother me. I think the fact that I'm the one that deals with DS everyday whilst DH is at work means I've learnt to pick my battles with DS a bit more...

    I'm the bad one and our bubs isn't even born yet!

    DH has two kids from a previous relationship and he struggles with setting boundaries with them so he lets them get away with blue murder. I'm always the one that has to set the rules and enforce them. Makes me feel awful at times but we are the parents and have to teach them right from wrong.

    The kids are getting to an age now where they are testing us so I have to keep reminding DH that it is so important to 'parent' them, is a struggle though and I know he is going to be exactly the same with our bub.

    We are both tough in different ways . My DH will carry on more about small things like oh why are you letting them do that touch this touch that where I'm very easygoing and say just let them be kids and get off their back , where for the discipline stuff I am the tougher one.

    My husband will just flat out give in for the bigger stuff if they are carrying on, to be honest he doesn't really know how to handle it , will get overwhelmed and just give in .

    I reckon it'll be me but will be interesting to find out once bub is here! We're both teachers (hubby high school and myself in prep) so we both deal with behaviour etc every day
    Plus when I was growing up I was always the disciplinarian (after my dad walked out) with my siblings

    Me and DP are the tough ones on DS but we have to be because FOB is the fun one who lets him get away with everything.

    DP has a plan for when our DD grows up and gets to "that age" .....he said he is going to be the nice one which forces me to be the mean one, that way she will be a daddys girl and will listen to him when he tries to tell her to stay away from certain bad boys that she will no doubt be attracted to

    I'm tough on tantrums, food refusal, the need to sleep and P&Qs. Dh is tough on..... Hmmm....

    Still thinking....

    Oh yea , nothing. He will back me up on everything and vice versa but he doesn't set the ground rules.
